I've been craving Yooka-Laylee on PS4, but held out for Switch

Yooka-Laylee for Nintendo Switch
Having passed over Yooka-Laylee for PS4 on many occasions, Limited Run Games brings the physical release to Nintendo's Switch.
I've read mixed reviews about Yooka-Laylee, but I crave it's look and feel. I can no longer count the number of times I've picked up the PS4 release in GameStop and managed to talk myself down... and wait for the Switch version!

Today was the day! Limited Run Games brought the physical release to Switch. Price-wise, the PS4 version is half the price, and the Switch DL has been around since last Christmas, but I'm a glutton for punishment.

Yooka-Laylee Classic Edition for Nintendo Switch Yooka-Laylee Classic Edition for Nintendo Switch was limited to 3,000 copies available worldwide!

This Classic Edition included : the region-free Yooka-Laylee physical game, Full-color retro-style manual, 18 x 24 inch poster, CD soundtrack, non-functional retro cartridge (for display only).

I ordered the standard edition, but the Classic Edition looked pretty sweet. It came with some nifty stuff, but had I known about the mock-N64 cartridge, I'd have bought it in a heartbeat! Alas, it was sold out, but you can still get the standard edition as it is being made-to-order based on sales numbers. The Classic Edition has limited quantities of the various hard-goods, so it sold out.
